Taub's original musical adaptations of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and As You
Like Itwere commissioned by the Public Theater as part of their
Works initiative, and both received critically acclaimed productions at the Delacorte Theater in
Central Park in which she also starred. The original cast album of her Drama Desk nominated score
for Twelfth Night was released by Craft Recordings, and both
of her Shakespeare musicals have gone on to be produced by Seattle Repertory Theatre, Dallas Theater Center, the
National Theatre in London and many schools and communities around the world. They are currently available for
worldwide licensing through Concord Theatricals.
